[Vtigercrm-developers] Why Accounts an Account ?

Dear Team,

These Accounts.php, Contacts.php, etc., are added to keey the Module name, Module.php name and Class Name similar.
For example if we take Accounts, (module/Accounts/Accounts.php)
module = Accounts
module.php file = Accounts.php
class name = Accounts

In some places, when we try to include a file or create a object basedon the module we could not do that. Also it will helpful when we addnew modules in future. so that we have used these files with 's'instead of old files.

Hope this is clear.
Thanks & Regards

why not simply say everything in the future should be plural?
